Many people suffer from depression to varying degrees and each individual has their own experience of the mental illness. However, there is more to depression than just feeling down and sufferers are just not able to “snap out of it”. Some describe depression metaphorically as being plunged into darkness, falling into a sense of despair with no control over their emotions. The fact is that depression can debilitate people to the extent that they are unable to participate fully in daily life. Despite the devastating potential of depression, there are numerous treatment resources available including the specialist services of CASA Recovery in Southern California.
